James Mitchell
CIA Contractor and Architect of the CIA's Enhanced Interrogation Techniques
FOXNEWSW 12/10/2014
Henry: A psychologist known as the architect of the CIA's enhanced interrogations told Vice News, using those tactics on 39 detainees pales to using drones to kill thousands Mitchell: To me it seems completely insensible that slapping KSM is bad but send in a hell fire missile into a family’s picnic and killing all the children, killing Granny, and killing everyone is Ok for a lot of reasons. One of the reasons is, what about that collateral loss of life. And the other one is if you kill them, you can’t question them. Henry: Earnest insisted otherwise. Earnest: We’ve seen many cases around the world where U.S. drones have killed innocent civilians, despite those safeguards. So how do you have a moral authority. Earnest: What I'm saying is that is a stark difference than the tactics that are employed by our enemies who seek to use car bombs to actually target innocent civilians.
